    Man I feel horrible for the fans in ATL. Hopefully the relocation supporters can show some class through this process.

    Well, its not officially done. Many on Twitter claiming this.
     
  8. Fugu why'd you lock the other threads? Are you just sick of all the banter? :laugh:

    it's not official yet... It's actually going the other way saying it hasn't even happened.


    Dreger is pretty credible too.

    It is done, they are just not happy the news broke from a source other than True North or the NHL. I know Thrasher fans don't want to accept the reality but they are moving.

    MacKenzie and Dreger are saying on TSN now that it is not a done deal
     
  12. I think it might as well be done at this point.

    What more do you need? The team can move... but they haven't yet. Nothing has been set in stone. It's not official.

    I'm getting a bit wet in the eye, I feel bad for the Atlanta fans....

    maybe some day done the road, in a few decades, Atlanta can have another chance.

    Yet all of them are saying it will get done even if it is not officially done yet.

    He got squeezed ...... part 8 was about to go over the 1000 posts limit (and does vb 4.0 even have that issue anymore?).. and I think a joint thread is a good way to go even if its not confirmed, as the two are pretty much linked now.

    It appears that nothing is done coming from A LOT of different places, but you could be right. :(:cry::cry::cry::cry:

    Doubt it, if it's true, NHL's not coming back for a third time. Atlanta Spirit, LLC has salted the earth for hockey in Georgia for generations to come.

    Maybe if we're lucky we'll get an AHL team if the Thrashers move.
